Arctic Monkeys – Don't Sit Down 'Cause I've Moved Your Chair (album: Suck It and See 2011)

This next song is by Arctic Monkeys. It’s a new song from their new album and it’s quite awesome! Discovered by my Hubby and adopted by HenryRulez ; ) the lyrics are quite funny , They must have been pretty stoned when they wrote it!!!
Speaking of sitting down in the wrong places at the wrong time, I once got very drunk in a night club and I fell asleep on a bench. When I woke up I realized I couldn’t move my head because it got stuck in between the gaps of the bench. My girlfriends spent quite some time trying to pull my head out of the bench. It was just hilarious! We all couldn’t stop laughing which made it even harder to fix the problem. Finally I’ve managed to escape with no damage to my head or the bench. I’ve definitely entertained a few people that night. Anyway, I hope you enjoy this awesome song…

What’s this song about?

This is a comment from songfacts website:

The inspiration for the song came from a comment chief Monkeys songwriter Alex Turner made whilst recording the soundtrack for his friend Richard Ayoade's debut film, Submarine. He recalled to the NME: "I said it to somebody whose chair I'd moved and I didn't want them to hurt themselves. This was while we were in the studio doing the Submarine recording. James (Ford, producer) said, 'Oh that sounds like it could be a '60s garage 'Nuggets' tune and be called that. So then we thought, 'Well, OK if that's what you can't do (sit down because your chair has been moved), then what sort of ridiculous things can you do that probably more dangerous than if you just sit down?'
But also I quite like that it's, y'know.. Well, you don't want people to be sat down, do you? You want them to be up."
